The Motherisk Nausea and Vomiting of Pregnancy (NVP) ForumMotherisk receives questions from around the world about morning sickness symptoms, effects, treatments and ways to cope. Those questions and answers are posted here for anyone to read, provided the reader acknowledges and accepts the proviso and disclaimer below.
I am suffering from terrible NVP and have found soild foods all but impossible to stomach. Please tell me there is some relief in sight. I have lost over 10 pounds and am worried about the health of my baby. I am 7 weeks along and am feeling like I will never get to 12 weeks.
Most women with NVP find it difficult to eat solid foods. We suggest that you eat small amounts (no more than a bite or two of any food every hour) to keep something in your stomach at all times. Call us at 1-800-436-8477 for more information. If your symptoms are severe and you have experienced weight loss, speak to your doctor. Safe treatment is available.
